I usually update my profile every December but this year I think I am going to do it early. It is November, just before the US Thanksgiving. Again, to review the basics; my name is Jim and I live in Western NY, upstate and no where near the City. I started my journey to better health when I realized how out of shape I was while on my first assignment in the army. Ten years in the US military taught me how exercise and eat properly. I weight 230 lbs. when I got out but after training, I was down to a muscular 175. I battled my weight problems for so many years after getting out. I let myself go for a while and went up to 230 lbs. again, but this time I had a lot more muscle than before. I was on a heavy weightlifting regiment. But overweight was overweight, so I worked myself into the 180 lbs., range. I was good with that because I had a lot of muscle weight. I started to let myself go again and BOOM! I ended up weighing 200 lbs. I went to see a doctor who helped me get back to the 180’s. When I reached my goal, I again got stupid and let things go. To cut this story short, it has been a constant battle, whenever I saw myself getting over the 190 mark I would go back to dieting. OK after a few bounces back and forth here I am again at 193 - and again I am heading back to the weight loss clinic for help.

This time I am going to try a maintenance program once I am down to 180.

Height 5’8” –
First objective – 185 lbs.
Second objective – 180 lbs.
Goal maintain the 180 lbs. until the end of August.

What I do is I use a decimal to log a different food amount. For example if it says on cup or one ounce, I may use .5 or .25. You can save food use log often but there is also an option on the side of the right side of the menu that you can use - it is for food you "recently" logged or for food you eat "most" These options are when you use the app on your phone. Do you have a phone? Download the app, it is well worth it

Trouble with entering food
I thought I would stop back and see if you solved the problem, Piksone?

I hope it works for you if not let us know there are a couple of other fixes available depending on how you are connecting. If it is with an app on your smartphone, you may have to uninstall then reinstall the app itself.

From time to time I have issues with connecting to the server, this sounds like what you are describing but it is generally temporary. If I reboot or disconnect and try it again it generally clears up.
